Restoring Community

I'm continuing the Sunday videos series with the full plenary talk given by Dr. Stacey Miller, director of residential life at the University of Vermont at IIRP's 15th World Conference. Her 33 minute talk is well worth the time. It's not only highly informative, but also funny and lively, and provides a lot of clues about the type of leadership that is required to implement restorative practices not only at the university level, but also in schools, workplaces and other institutions. The talk is loaded with anecdotes and practical examples.

The video can be found here.

Her paper, Understanding the Power of Restorative Practices in Residential Communities, co-written with assistant director of residence education, Christina Olstad, can be found here.

Stacey Miller co-wrote the first chapter of the book, Building Campus Community: Restorative Practices in Residential Life.
